Example to Align a View at the Bottom of Screen in React Native

React Native Style

This is an Example to Align a View at the Bottom of Screen in React Native. To do this we will use the Stylesheet element position: 'absolute'.

Align a View at the Bottom Using

bottomView: {
  width: '100%',
  height: 50,
  backgroundColor: '#EE5407',
  justifyContent: 'center',
  alignItems: 'center',
  position: 'absolute', //Here is the trick
  bottom: 0, //Here is the trick
}

Let’s get started with the example.

To Make a React Native App

Getting started with React Native will help you to know more about the way you can make a React Native project. We are going to use react-native init to make our React Native App. Assuming that you have node installed, you can use npm to install the react-native-cli command line utility. Open the terminal and go to the workspace and run

npm install -g react-native-cli

Run the following commands to create a new React Native project

react-native init ProjectName

If you want to start a new project with a specific React Native version, you can use the --version argument:

react-native init ProjectName --version X.XX.X
react-native init ProjectName --version react-native@next

This will make a project structure with an index file named App.js in your project directory.

Code

Open App.js in any code editor and replace the code with the following code

App.js

/*This is an Example to Align a View at the Bottom of Screen in React Native */
import React, { Component } from 'react';
//import react in our project
import { StyleSheet, View, Text } from 'react-native';
export default class App extends Component {
  render() {
    return (
      <View style={styles.containerMain}>
        <Text> Main Content Here</Text>
        <View style={styles.bottomView}>
          <Text style={styles.textStyle}>Bottom View</Text>
        </View>
      </View>
    );
  }
}
const styles = StyleSheet.create({
  containerMain: {
    flex: 1,
    alignItems: 'center',
    justifyContent: 'center',
  },
  bottomView: {
    width: '100%',
    height: 50,
    backgroundColor: '#EE5407',
    justifyContent: 'center',
    alignItems: 'center',
    position: 'absolute', //Here is the trick
    bottom: 0, //Here is the trick
  },
  textStyle: {
    color: '#fff',
    fontSize: 18,
  },
});

To Run the React Native App

Open the terminal again and jump into your project using.
cd ProjectName
To run the project on an Android Virtual Device or on real debugging device
react-native run-android
or on the iOS Simulator by running
react-native run-ios (macOS only).
